Thanks Chris,
21,000+miles on the same oil? Just change the filter and top off the oil level?

Ya think it would be worse if the engine was occasionally over fueled and over boosted?

Do you have the bypass filter kit? Or are you still going just through the stock filter? What filter are you running?

Don't be alarmed on copper, this is common. When I had my 2nd gen with Dual bypass filtration I have seen 300 and above, it did come down.

Good Article:

Nothing out of the ordinary, looks good. 40,000 miles not bad at all.
